Letter of the Week – “What a revelation the Hot Stamper is!”

Letters and Commentaries for Sgt. Peppers

One of our good customers had this to say about some Hot Stampers he purchased recently:

Hey Tom, 

I have enjoyed your records since I got a “Sgt. Peppers” hot stamper in 2011, and you guys have never disappointed me!

Every time I play one of the hot stampers for my musician friends, I don’t tell them “it’s a special pressing” but just play the record – they always comment on the sound quality, almost always saying “that’s so clear, so clean, etc…” – even my 65 year old father, with no musical background at all, was amazed when I play your Beatles stampers. He said, “in my time, records sounded scratchy and noisy.” What a revelation the Hot Stamper is!

Sorry to gush, Tom, but I’m just a customer for as long as I have hearing!

Cheers! All hail Better Records!

Kyle M.


Thanks for writing, we always love to hear from our customers how much they love the music we sell. What could be better than a killer copy of Sgt. Pepper? You could play that record start to finish every week for years and never tire of it.

We do a shootout for it about twice a year and we never tire of the music, so it seems as though it is holding up just fine 50+ years on.

Best, TP
